Americans are in more a state of "mental retardation" for even considering a clean shaved Santa with no gifts
They are in touch allright... in touch with emptying peoples wallets

McCain is claiming the fundamentals of the economy are sound. He's clearly not qualified to be the next President.

******* because the candidates now are fnally talking about the banking collapse, I reposted a review of what they said and my commentary in a new thread with a more accurate title to encourage responses that better reflect the turn in events ***************************

Thanks everyone for your replies to this one. I read all of them and glad to see everyone made their points...

I don't get it.

Corporations need to be taxed so they won't have the money to go oversees?

That is a very simplistic conclusion to everything I have said and presented so I wont even bother answering this.

Actually corporations move oversees because it isn't profitable to run operations in the U.S. anymore. It is easier to pay someone $2 per day to make junk than it is to pay someone 20$ per hour.

And I already said this.

If there are any complaints about this, read the label and buy Made in the U.S.A.

Agree 100%

They talk about it quite frequently.

Why do you think they dont?

Too busy with their "Ego Trip"?

Or, could it be, that they are both "Elitists", out of touch with the real problems the "average American" faces? Maybe, they are so rich they don't have to worry about the economy...

No, I just think they haven't got a clue on how to fix it...
Seems to me that American, an European, economists and leaders, are having a tough time dealing with the spread of wealth, and economic growth, on other parts of the globe (China, India, and Brazil). Japan's economy also seems to be going down the drain...

Really? - Well McCain basically says there is no problem just work harder sissies, and that he believes in America, move along. Obama more or less says yes the economy is somewhat rough now but he can fix it once elected by somehow spending even more money we don't have.

That is called avoiding the issue or to put it another way they are lying through their teeth. Now I suppose to the average blissfully ignorant American they must basically hear don't worry about it - just vote for me. If you are satisfied with those answer's then you are one of the above.

If they seriously talked about how bad the problem is there would be a panic - we are facing a depression - even Greenspan is basically admitting it now - calling the current crisis a once in a century occurrence.

Bottom line is the good times are over - America, and Americans themselves are HEAVILY in debt. The debt will be paid one way or another through taxes or inflation. There is no escape no matter how much anyone wants to make it go away.

They are trying everything imaginable to keep the economy from completely imploding before the election but they are failing, and in fact are making the problems even worse in the process. You get the government you deserve- well we are going to get it alright.

this is not related but some in this thread made a good point what if a huge percentage of people in our country didnt vote at all. I think something like that would be a good start that just because your in the spotlight dosent mean were voting for you
